Boho Chic

Boho chic dorms are soft, clean, and full of sharp angles and soft macrame. Adding textures like faux fur and mandala tapestries give the room a different feel without making the look too involved or detailed. Warm earthy colors and pattern-mixture will achieve a great look for your home-away-from-home.

Feminine / Girly

Girls just wanna have fun, and so do their dorms! The style of a feminine or girly dorm aesthetic is soft, pink, with pops of gold or metallic. Some ultra feminine rooms have bright pink tones while others prefer softness in their dorms. Either lean towards preppy or take in more boho chic bibes. As long as you feel girly and flirty, you can do anything you want!

One of the more popular styles for dorm decor is the minimalist look. Clean lines, minimal wall art, twinkle lights, and a little pop or pattern here or there. A great way to create a great design within your dorm using a minimalist look is to throw a decorative pillow or two on your bed or create an organized photo gallery to pull the entire look together.

Who doesn’t love a good, preppy dorm? One of the oldest and most popular decor styles for dorms is preppy, with nautical themes, bright colors, and of course, a good old fashioned monogram.
